This blog started out as "Baby Dunkelberger", a journey through my pregnancy. After our little one finally arrived, I decided to change the name to "The Dunkelberger Family", the adventures of Tyler, Jami, Lyla, Bella, Cash, Marmaduke and anyone else who should stumble into our crazy family :)

week 4: my parents

where to start? If i could describe my parents in 3 words, they would be "hippies from california".

My mom is VERY loud and VERY outspoken. She is so loud and outspoken that it often embarrasses me. She loves tie-dye clothing and birkenstocks. She has discovered texting recently and sends me THE longest texts. I tend to reply with one sentence because I have a word limit on my texts. She must've yelled at Verizon until they made it so she has no word limit. She is hard to handle, I dont know how my dad has lasted so long. She is a great cook. She is tall like me. She is very excited she is a grandma and has been buying everything in sight for Lyla. She is a great garage-saler. Although most of the time, I can only take her in small doses, Im very thankful for her.

My dad is very much the opposite of my mom. He is short. By far the shortest one in our family standing at about 5'8". He is much calmer than my mom. He loves to talk and tell stories. He always has a new idea or project. He is a hard worker and has supported our family by himself for my entire life. He is very creative and artsy. He can, and will, fall asleep anywhere. He is an animal lover. We have had so many animals throughout our lifetime and he still gets so heartbroken when one of them passes away. He has tractors and so my mom must buy every baby john deere item she sees. Lyla got a ride on john deere tractor for christmas. Im sure she will love it when she can use it. I'm very proud of my dad and very thankful for him. I am and always will be daddy's little girl.
